MLA 2023- Figurations of Labor in the Global Early Modern

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, May 25, 2022

In the last quarter century, early modern scholarship has expanded its borders to encompass literatures from languages outside of the European tradition, marking them as part of a global formation of early modernity. This session proposes to contribute to global early modern studies by asking about the nature, place and literary figuration of labor in works from the period. How is labor defined, fabricated, mobilized, mapoed, imagined, or deployed? How do characters showcase agency or the lack of it in terms of their labor and work? What geographies or temporal instantiations enable particular forms of labor to emerge as both historically and literarily contingent?

This special session invites proposals that engage with literary or cultural food studies, food novels, or other texts that depict food and eating in unconventional ways. How can we approach literary or cultural texts through the framework of food and eating and what effect does this have on the reading experience or the audience? This panel is especially interested in proposals that examine socially or politically sensitive topics and, with respect to the conference theme Post-Now, the alternative ways of reading and perceiving that the food lens can enable. Proposals should indicate your name, institutional affiliation, e-mail address, and paper title, as well as the methodologies used and the text(s) under consideration.

Images of the Hero: Heroism in Literature (East/Southeast Regional Meeting of the CCL)

In The Hero with A Thousand Faces, Joseph Campbell asserts that the mythic figure of the hero is central to understanding the human experience. He argues that “the hero is symbolical of that divine creative and redemptive image within us all, only waiting to be known and rendered into life.” The hero, in other words, might be said to be the embodiment or archetype of the imago Dei raised to the highest pitch, functioning as an exemplar of what humanity at its level best can do.

GCRR Press is inviting papers for a themed article collection relating to the New Testament Gospel of John for inclusion in a proposed scholarly anthology in the field of Jewish Studies. Topics should explore the Fourth Gospel in regard to its representation, depiction, and treatment of "the Jews" in the Fourth Gospel. By exploring this topic across time and place, this collection aims to provide an historical context for understanding not only the Jewish Jesus but the specific framework in which Johannine Christianity was tied intrinsically to ancient Judaism, while simultaneously distancing itself of Jewish thought and culture.

“Vocation is one’s response to a call from beyond oneself to use one’s strengths and gifts to make the world a better place through service, creativity, and leadership.  To speak of vocation or calling is to suggest that my life is  a response to something beyond myself.”

-Roger Ebertz, University of Dubuque [1]

Identity, role and gender have their parts to play in narratives, and recognition may be a feature in plots. Clothing functions in a cultural, semiotic, system.

Coauthoring the Early Modern Period

updated: 
Monday, February 28, 2022 - 10:49am
Sixteenth Century Society & Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, April 1, 2022

Why study the early modern period? Most academics of earlier periods have encountered this question in one form or another. This question seems especially pressing when it comes to teaching. For many of us, it is our goal to have monographs published by university presses and spend summers conducting research in archives. But the reality is that a large part of our day-to-day impact as scholars is on the undergraduate students we encounter as instructors, usually teens and young adults. This panel is interested in engaging in a conversation about how teaching undergraduate students impacts our scholarship in early modern studies.

Performance, Religion, & Spirituality: Performance Research and Ancient Texts

updated: 
Tuesday, February 1, 2022 - 7:27pm
Performance, Religion, and Spirituality
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, April 1, 2022

For an upcoming special section, the editors of PRS are seeking research that uses performance as an analytical method to understand the structure, function, use, meaning, or affects of classical religious, philosophical or religious texts. The problem of how to ‘activate’ classical texts for contemporary readers is difficult, and in recent decades, some scholars, artists and religious professionals have turned to making their own live performances responding to classical texts—in a wide variety of forms and settings—as a means of doing so. In this work, they often are forced to make complex decisions that highlight the assumptions, meanings, and consequences embedded in these texts that may not be as visible to the non-performative reader.
